Praise Him!

I only have a sec, but I wanted to pop on and say a great big "THANK YOU" for all who have been praying for Jimmy and I. There's still no change in the circumstances, but last night there were some BIG changes in my man. We got in bed and were both laying there waiting for the other to start praying - or so I like to think - and it was total silence. I was a bit upset, mostly at myself for not starting things but sometimes you know you just like your man to take the bull by the horns. ;-) Anyway, as I lay there pouting to God Jimmy says "Babe, I've just been laying here praying and all I can tell you is I feel this burden being lifted from me. For the first time since the 1st of June I am at COMPLETE peace with whatever God has in store for me." Then he goes "Will you pray with me now?" So we prayed together and it was just AWESOME. It's so unlike my control-freak,(just kiddin) I mean, loving wonderful husband to completely let go and be at peace that I can assure you all that your prayers are being answered. So, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!

Father God I ask you to pour out a double portion of blessings on each and every person who has lifted us to your throne. Thank you for putting us on their hearts and in their minds and now I would ask you to reward their faithfulness with your blessings. Father I thank you for Jimmy. I thank you for the work you're doing in both of us. I thank you for this refinement and I praise you for whatever the outcome is!! Thank you for loving us and for caring enough to take our burdens and carry them for us. I love you Father. In the name of Jesus I ask these things and expectantly await your answer. Amen.
